O ne of the single smartest decisions I ever made was asking a group of six friends out to lunch in 2016. I thought we could get together and just chat about business for an hour or two. Little did I know what one lunch would become. Since then, this group of six friends has expanded into a group of more than 25 women who are entrepreneurs, business owners, and business influencers. We meet once a month to talk about our businesses. These women are incredible. Every month, after our 90-minute lunch, I leave inspired. We all leave inspired. We sit down and talk about real issues impacting our respective businesses. We talk about how to get new clients, ideas on expanding market share, best hiring practices, and the key things slowing down our success — as well as, conversely, the factors contributing to our success, to name just a few topics we’ve covered.
In many respects, the Business Forum allows us to serve as an informal “board of directors” for one another. It’s part advice forum, part cheering squad. There are no limits. Nothing is off-topic. All ideas are welcome. I started this group with a simple intent. I wanted to sit down and talk with fellow women entrepreneurs. I wanted to forge new professional connections and help others do the same. I am committed to seeing that everyone who participates in the forum gets something out of it, whether it’s support, advice, or even a lead on a new client. We help one another grow as professionals and do what we can to contribute to the success of one another’s businesses. If there is an opportunity for growth, we’re there to support each other along the way. Success, after all, is a collaboration.
AROUND THE FIRM
... Continued from page 1
People want to do business with people they know, like, and trust. Trying to sell to someone who has never bought from you before is, again, expensive. In fact, it’s the most expensive way to get new clients. When you want your garden to grow and want it to grow well, it takes a lot of hard work and TLC. You will have to tend to your garden every day, but once you begin your harvest — the literal fruits of your labor — that’s when you’ll know it’s completely worth it.
